Ah, yes. The underpinnings for sugar addiction. I’m O.K. Breathe easier.

Think of the actual physical elements that compose our bodies: we are 98 percent hydrogen and oxygen and carbon. That’s table sugar. You are made of the same stuff as table sugar.

Just a couple of tiny differences here and there and look what happened to the sugar: it can stand upright and send tweets.

  6. Laughing…I was *just* thinking about you yesterday, DK, as I watched a documentary called ‘Fed Up,’ which talks about sugar addiction. 😉 Not such a sweet thing….(but I love Burroughs’ writing, so will have to check that out).

  15. Well sugar is all fine and good, except the tweeting kind of sugar, that has a rather sour taste to it. But find me some other sugar daddy and I be a happy woman 🙂

  16. how sweet!

    I certainly must have a few leftovers of the ‘real’ sugar in my body; I’m NOT a dessert or sweets person and yet – I look at a cake or patisserie and have another 5 pounds on my hips/stomach/everywhere…. 🙂
